Breeding Long-tailed Silky Flycatchers

Breeding in the tropics can happen at pretty much anytime of the year. As a result, birds are born throughout the year, royally screwing with the methods of ageing and sexing birds that we are accustom to. The positive of this is that we have gotten to see a few actively nesting birds while here.

Such as a pair of Long-tailed Silky Flycatchers. Gathering for the nest.

  1. What a disgustingly pleasant bird. The all-lichen nest only makes them worse.
